CRICKET. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 20 January 1912
CKICKET. (By Lookei'-On.) The third test began to be mem orable before the eve of battle, ; owing to the wires between Hill in Adelaide, and lxis "brother" sel ectors, M'Alister and Iredale in Mel bourne and Sydney, Hill wanted Macartney back in the team. , The other two considered Matthews would do better for Australia. Macartney, in his first match this season, against. Queensland, made 122 and took 5 wickets for 81 runs. Australian teams are not picked on form against Queensland alone. Macartney did not repeat that form, or show anything like it in his three Sheffield Shield matches and New South Wales v. England, in six innings, onco not out, against South Australia, twice, and Victoria, he aggregate just 5S runs. For his State ver. .England, he made one run. In the Victorian match, he took three wickets for S5, but 20 had been hit off him in the first S.A. match and he failed to got a wicket for nine runs for N.S.W. v. England. In matches that mattered therefore, he had taken t...

CANADA THROUGH AUSTRALIAN SPECTACLES WINNIPEG CHAPTER XII. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 20 January 1912
(P A m A itft A through Australian ^/m\! #x1uj/ja :: :: :: spectacles :: :: :: WINNIPEG By ROBERT McMILLAN CHAPTER XII Your first impression on arriving- in Winnipeg is that of disap pointment. It is just like any other English or Australian town. There are motor-cars, sight-seeing cars, tram cars, and all the ve hicles we are accustomed to, and the streets are up for repairs! All civilized countries appear to be fond of taking up the streets, and per haps that is only a manifestation of the complexity of their civiliza tion. Winnipeg has some wonderfully tall, solid, impressive build ings, and wide, tree-planted streets. It has a population of nearly 200,000, and it has all grown up in a few years. I had the same feeling in Winnipeg" as I had when I first landed in Perth, W.A. I had travelled over 2,000 miles from Sydney in a big steamer, and landing at Fremantle, had taken the train up to Perth, and when I got there, it was just Australian, British, ordinary commonplace, the same ...

SLEEPING AT WILL EXPLAINED. [Newspaper Article] — Forbes Times — 20 January 1912
SLEEPING AT WILL EXPLAINED. To bo able to sleep at will is one of the accomplishments most people desire. It appears, however, that those who possess It are not much to bo onviod. Dr. Court ney, an expert in nervous diseases, says that the majority of people who can fall rapidly asleep whonever they wish it, are persons of very little feeling or power of reflection. A poet, an artist, a man of strong emotions, cannot sloop at will, for liis mind is as active when ho closes his eyos as when he Is looking out on the world. But in the case of tho sleep-at will people, when they shut out sights and sounds their mind is nearly empty. Very little remains to produce conscious ness, and so they fall asleep because thorc Is nothing to keep their brains at work.

"They ought to give us this love-making game the way it 'b carried out in real life. "I claim that people don't propose at all! There's none of that heart-palpitat ing business outside of the Bob Chambers and othor brands of fiction. I 'm not mar ried myself, but I got interested in the proposal thing some time ago, and made investigations. First of all, .1 spoke to my old friend, Phil Harper. Phil's been married for only about two years and a half—not so long that ho wouldn't remember the full particulars. " 'Phil,' says I, 'tell me now—and this is no kid, understand—tell me what you said when you proposed to your wife. Wliero woro you, and how did you get around to tho subject, and were you scared, and what did your wife—or, ra ther, your girl—say to you, and all that ." "Phil looked at me...

Constitution. DEFINING A RACE CLUB. PROPOSED AMENDMENT. The protest of the Bathurst Turf Club against the constitution of the Western District Racing Associa tion's constitution as it at present stands has (says Bathurst "Times") apparently had good effect—effect in the direction of causing some of the executive at least to wake up to the fact that the rules are unjust. At a meeting of the W.D.R.A., at Orange, on February 9, Mr. J.J. Dalton will move the following amendments and additions : 1. To amend rule 7 by leaving out the following words : "An affiliated club shall be entitled to vote by proxy at any meeting of delegates. Such proxy shall be signed by the president and secre tary of the club, and shall be in the hands of the secretary of tho Association not later than the hour fixed for the meeting of the dele gates " 2.
